Tagging a tragis story 2.

Tagging, a tragic story,

Bruce Emery, 51, was sentenced to four years and three months in prison when he appeared in the High Court at Auckland yesterday for the manslaughter of Pihema Cameron, 15, who had been tagging Emery's garage door with a friend on January 26 last year.

It is a sad case, the Cameron family lost their baby as his mum calls him. The court is accused of being racist and unfair.Emery was accused as the expressionless man who killed their son.

The Emery family say they are not public people. They grieve in private.

From its outset, the case sparked huge debate over the wider issue of tagging and of the right of property owners to protect their homes.

However, Justice Hugh Williams told Emery he was not being judged against the actions of the taggers or the massive public debate.

Personally, I don't like tagging. I have written my thoughts on this. But to be killed is too harsh a punishment for this.

Hi :O)

RYN - Yes my potatoes suffered the same way but depending how mature the plants were before going brown you may well find a few potatoes in the earth ...Certainly if they are brown and shrivelled dig them up and see - dispose of the potatoes leaves in your dustbin not the compost ...
